Functioning at 200 watts, the jet dryer is ideal for high-traffi c environments. Its life expectancy is more than 7,500 hours. The hand dryer's sleek, distinctive design features a curved, stainless steel cover with a satin-fi nish vertical grain. To enable ADA-compliant design, the unit projects no more than 4 inches from the wall. An infrared sensor facilitates automatic operation, with automatic shut-off after 85 seconds.

Leveraging technology, the faucets eliminate the costs of specifying, installing and maintaining separate mixing valves, while automatically preventing accidental scalding for the user. The faucets feature an integrated design that incorpo- rates the electronics in the spout, eliminating the need for a control box below the deck and shortening installation time. In addition, the faucets are offered in a choice of three water- saving fl ow rates: 1.5 gpm, .5 gpm and .35 gpm, which saves 84 percent more water than a standard faucet. ID#104 New Sensor Faucet Features Sleek, Compact Design T&S Brass and Bronze Works has released a freshly styled sensor faucet that offers a sleek, compact design. The EC-3142 sensor faucet is a more streamlined product ideal for lavatory sinks and other areas where hygiene and water conservation are crucial considerations. The EC-3142 includes above-deck electronics with point-of- use temperature mixing handle and comes standard with a 2.2 gpm vandal-resistant aerator. Additional features include a water- resistant control module with internal fl ow control switches and an optional auto fl ush feature that fl ows water for 30 seconds after every 12 inactive hours. ID#101 Zurn Maintains Water Efficiency Commitment with High-Efficiency Floor Bowl Designed to maximize water savings, the Zurn High Effi ciency 1.1 gpf fl oor bowl system can deliver a 31 percent water savings over a 1.6 gpf closet system, while ensuring full evacuation of the toilet bowl. The bowl is available in standard and ADA heights, with and without bed pan lugs and with optional antimicrobial glazing, making this the ideal selection for healthcare facilities. The Zurn EcoVantage 1.1 gpf High Effi ciency Floor Bowl system can aid in achieving total water reduc- tion in excess of the 30 percent savings required to earn LEED points. ID#102 Hands-Free Faucet Promotes Proper Hand- Washing Best Practices Equipped with .5 or 1.5 gpm fl ow rate op- tions, the BASYS EFX-275 faucet from Sloan is equipped with a sensor for hands-free application, as well as a double-infrared sensor activated for pre-tempered or hot and cold water operation. Its LCD display guides users through hand-washing rec- ommendations to promote proper hand- washing best practices.
